Train 371 is crawling NB past MP 22.5 through the slow order out back that is blocking Main 2. Power is CN 2319 and 2257.

Amtrak 350 is running over an hour late again today and should be right behind 371, maybe on its block again.

Amtrak 350 passing MP 22.5 at 4:11 pm, 1 hour 40 minutes late. The same two Chargers on each end.

Train 515 is NB passing MP 22.5 at 4:34 pm on its way back to Pontiac.

My dad saw some shiny CN passenger cars on a train this morning on his way to work. He lives about a mile away from the Linden Rd overpass on the Flint Sub. Unfortunately he hasn’t told me which way they were headed but interesting none the less.

Train 371 with UP 5552 and 4198 and BNSF 7255 and 9283 is passing MP 22.5 at 2:52 pm very slowly. Amtrak 350 is about 2 hours behind schedule again (those darn Chargers!).

Twenty minutes later 371 finally cleared MP 22.5. Hate to see what traffic is like on Opdyke right now or in Pontiac.

Train 515 NB returning to Pontiac went by 22.5 at 3:55 pm with a long train of mostly tanks and empty centerbeams.

Then passing 515 (I guess Main 2 is clear of workers now) out back was the extra Amtrak train with all the long-distance sleeper and baggage cars again, this time with a GE on the lead and a Charger on the rear. Where is that coming from? Never saw it head into Pontiac these last two days. Leaving Pontiac much later today. No 350 yet.

On the Amtrak board GTW6401 reports that this Amtrak extra is a PTC test train and has the entire consist listed out.

Amtrak 350 with the two same Chargers passed MP 22.5 at 4:14 pm.
